CASE LAW UPDATE:  Whether the trial court properly revoked defendant’s probation?    

The trial court revoked defendant’s probation on his conviction of 1st degree possession of a controlled substance.  Defendant appealed.  On appeal, defendant argued that the trial court abused its discretion by concluding that the need for confinement outweighed the policies favoring continued probation.  Noting the trial court’s finding that treatment had failed because defendant repeatedly did not take advantage of the 0pportunity to obtain mental health services in the community, the Minnesota Court of Appeals found no abuse of discretion.  Affirmed.

State v. Vargas-Perez, A21-1181, Rice County.

Minnesota Criminal Defense Lawyer Lynne Torgerson was not attorney of record in this case.
